War's Holocaust.

--An enthusiastic proficient in the study of statistics lately calculated that fifteen millions of men have perished in the various wars which have been waged since the creation of the world. Carrying his calculations still further he estimates the blood shed in all these wars at 3,560,000 barrels, and taking the weight of each man at an average of 100 pounds, he concludes that 1,560,000 pounds of human flesh have been cut to pieces by hostile weapons.
